Gurudev Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa appointed Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree to be His spiritual heir, and subsequent Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, prior to His departure from this mortal world. However, due to His long-term illness and poor health condition, Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj has not appointed His successor.
The process of choosing a spiritual successor is stated in the Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Sant-Parshad Mandal Bandharan (Constitution) if the situation arises where an heir has not been appointed.
Following the process stated in this Sant-Parshad Mandal Bandharan, the Senior Sants with the unanimous support of all the other Sants, have appointed Sadguru Shastri Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swami to be the spiritual heir of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, and successor to Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj.
May the supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj give us all the spiritual strength and wisdom to remain humble disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, so that we can serve the Satsang under the guidance of Sadguru Shastri Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swami, and in this manner, immensely please Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj.
